a CONTENT PRODUCER with a flair for cinematic

About Me

SHOWREEL

Communicating great ideas through film and video.

Who am I?

I’m a film fanatic – I love what I do. I bring a cinematic edge to the projects I work on, not just because it engages the audience more effectively, but because its a lot more fun to work on. Being an independent filmmaker gives me the freedom to choose the projects I believe in – brands and ideas that positively impact our world. I have a knack for creating emotive narratives that motivate new ways of thinking and doing.  I’m a creative that’s produced countless film and video productions over the years. I’m a team player with access to top crews and production teams for jobs that require it. 

TECHNICAL BACKGROUND

Lessons critical to success can only be learned through experience. I’ve got nearly two decades of professional experience boht on set and in the editing room. My deep understanding of camera tech means that I can give high production values at affordable rates.  I’ve conducted countless interviews over the years, with luminaries like Annie Lennox,  Francois Pienaar, and Dylan Lewis. Some of the brands I’ve worked with include Kelloggs, Panasonic and The Weather Channel. Awards: TVC’s:  Silver Lourie (Cell-C “Subtitles”, editor); Vuka (Best Use of Humor, editor); Documentary: “Ruk en Riel”, Best Documentary Series (editor & camera). 

What I do

Telling a relatable story on video in a unique, out-the-box way will help your audience care about your message in a way that rote information just can’t do!

I bring a cinematic edge to video adverts that increases interest and raises production value

DOCUMENTARIES

Documentaries provide an opportunity to connect with real world issues, but they are also a powerful platform for increasing brand awareness

MUSIC VIDEOS

Music videos allow me to push the envelope and explore new ways to blend sound with imagery

LIVE EVENTS

I’ve filmed and directed more than 50 live events over the past 10 years – almost all of them multi-cam events
